In Deep Space Nine, I really liked the presence of the Bajorans, as they are my favourite Star Trek Aliens. I liked the earring they all wear and got myself a few in that style when they were in fashion and the general philosophy.
Of course, I also have a favourite costume: the Vedeks.
Now you can't make a Vedek's costume without using silk (how sad), so it will be a little pricey to make. For the robe itself, Dupioni or Shantung silk is the way to go. This I can find a local fabric store. For the draped "sash" and hat, I want to use silk brocade with a paisley motif. Once upon a time, I had found a really cool one in orange with lime green details, but I can no longer find it. So I started looking around and I found another nice one on eBay (I have not bought it yet); but this time, it's purple (why niot, I could go with a purple and brown colour theme).Oriental Silk Brocade - Purple & Black Paisley, Anya's Collection
It is about 13.50$ per metre, plus shipping. This leads me to conclude that when I am ready to make that costume, I will order my Brocade fabric first, and then I'll mach it to Shantung I can find locally.
Ah! I love silk!
